More sunshine, then more sunshine

Almost-perfect June weather is set to continue in mid-Michigan at least through the weekend, according to the weather gurus at the National Weather Service.
The forecast calls for sunshine during the day, with highs in the 80s, and clear, starry skies at night, featuring lows in the 50s.
The highs are a little warmer than normal for this time of year; the average high is about 77 or 78.
Farmers are starting to get a little worried about rainfall -- mid-Michigan is about an inch short of normal rain, and the first mention of rain in the forecast is Monday, and that's not much of a mention.
Still, the ag experts say there's adequate soil moisture, at least for now.
The clear, starry nights are great for sky-watching. The moon is fading toward new -- that happens Thursday -- and the stars are brilliant.
But there's not much time to watch them. Sunrise is the earliest of the year -- between now and June 19, sunrise is at 5:58 a.m., and the first glimmers of sunrise -- "astronomical twilight" -- starts about 3:37 a.m. The end of astronomical twilight is about 11:45 p.m.
But there's plenty of depth of the Chippewa River for a tube, or a kayaking or canoe trip.
It's summer.
